And she does it again. The now famous breakout Kenyan actress of "12 Years a Slave" Lupita Nyongo lands a starring role in Italian label Miu Mui's Spring 2014 campaign. She features alongside other Hollywood ingenues including Elle Fanning, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bella Heathcote.
I just watched Steve's McQueen's abolitionist movie "12 Years a Slave" this week, and true to warnings, it was neither easy on the eye nor on the soul. Lupita's performance (which has launched her into an unprecedented and meteoric rise in the acting and now fashion worlds) is pretty epic, and we are of course routing for Best Supporting Actress wins for her as award season begins (she's nominated for a Golden Globe which happens this Sunday). I mean, how many times have I written about Lupita on this blog?... We're definitely drinking this girl's Koolaid.
